Lifted | Mimbre

Fermentation Hall

Ready for an acrobatics performance?

Female-led, UK-based group Mimbre is headed to the Momentary to perform Lifted, a collection of funny, poetic, and surprising moments exploring what it means when one body is carried by another. 

Or when one person carries two people. 

Or when a person doesn’t want to be carried. 

Or when three people find the perfect balance.

Created in collaboration with three guest choreographers–Yi-Chun Liu, HURyCAN, and Gary Clarke–this captivating performance experiments with new approaches to Mimbre’s trademark acrobatics. Lifted mixes dance, theatre, and circus to celebrate the expressions and impressions that appear when three strong women move, lift, and balance each other.

Tickets are $15 ($10/member, $5/student), reserve your spot online or by calling Guest Services at (479) 657-2335 today.
Student tickets available to all guests under 17 or those with a valid student ID, presented upon entry.

Doors open 15 minutes prior to performance time. Performance lasts approx. 35 minutes. This is a seated show.
